Nice 120mm Cooler

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: The wire fan clips are super easy to use and better than mounting plastic parts to the fan.
  • Pros: Easy assembly, easy to add another fan for Push/Pull.
  • Cons: None, except you have to have experience to avoid problems. !!! WILL NOT WORK FOR 1366 XEON socket !!!

Re-installed on Z77 Mobo

Stephen G., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: This is the 2nd rig I have used this on, and with two different generations of CPU's and Mobo's. The Gammaxx 400 works really well once it's properly secured . Looks great as well. Well worth the money IMO.
  • Pros: 2nd review, this time for a install on a Z77 Mobo (775 before). As I mentioned before, a good looking and fairly quiet combo. Temps are in the mid 30's on a I5 2500K at idle, load temps max out in the upper 60's for stress tests, usually run in the mid 50's for gaming. Good combo with a few tweak...
  • Cons: The usual Intel plastic mounting pins suck, and the Deepcool version is just as worthless. I snipped my plastic pins off of the metal mounting plate and replaced them with plastic screws that can be found at most hardware stores (ACE, Lowes, Home Depot). 1/2 inch long works well. I bought nylon (...

Big Boy Cooler

Michael A., Newegg
1 July 2015
  • Summary: If you have installed other after market coolers, this should not be a problem for you If you have a large enough case - this one will keep your CPU nice and frosty
  • Pros: The size of this is both a pro and a con. Bought this based on reviews of this here at Newegg, not disappointed in its performance, but am with installation (covered later). This is a massive cooler (height wise). If you have a mid tower case or even a Full tower case with a side fan, just make s...
  • Cons: Installation and instructions They are just plain bad This is not a con of just this particular cooler, but the Socket LGA1150/1155 in general I have always hated the pins, especially the plastic ones. They almost never line up all at once correctly and I spend quite a while realigning them and t...

Tricky Installation - Read me if you are AMD

Larry Z., Newegg
23 June 2015
  • Summary: I am illuminati.
  • Pros: It is a very large heat sink! Yay! Has a fan on it. Yay!
  • Cons: Bad installation - to those that tried to force this bad boy onto your cpu and messed it up big time - this is how you do it right. 0. Take the Motherboard out for 1000% ease. Or you better have one long screw driver and tiny hands to get into the kinks of your machine. 1. You put the heatsink on...

User Review

Peter B., Newegg
22 June 2015
  • Pros: Works well and inexpensive, did not push into the RAM on my mobo (AsRock Z97X Killer). Deepcool customer service is usually pretty good.
  • Cons: Like many other people, I found installing this heatsink to be a pain. The only form of instructions are some poorly printed pictures on the back of the box. I've installed a lot of heatsinks, and this one still took me a good 15 minutes of fiddling with to sit properly, and clamp in. Have a look...

nice cooler

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Well built, cool looking design for cheap
  • Cons: Way harder than it should be to install. Just take your time or end up bending pins on cpu and turning this purchase into a couple hundred dollar purchase.

Solid CPU Cooler

Wesley D., Newegg
12 June 2015
  • Summary: Other than the minor installation difficulty, a great cooler.
  • Pros: Very quiet, keeps my core I7 cool, and blue LED looks good.
  • Cons: Some difficulty in installation, as it is difficult to reach the four pins that go into the motherboard because they are far underneath the fan.

Cool and not so Cool

Frank W., Newegg
12 June 2015
  • Summary: My MoBo: BioStar TZ68a+ LGA 1155 CPU: Intell i5-2500K
  • Pros: Great looking CPU cooler that does a decent job of cooling, if you can get it mounted properly. 4 copper heat pipes with an alloy block keeps my CPU cores mid 30s at idle and high 40s under load. I bought this because my 2nd Corsair H60 failed on me. I figured why not try a fan cooler at least I ...
  • Cons: Horrible installation instructions and horrible mounting hardware for the LGA 1155 socket. The instructions are graphic "pointy talky" style mounted on the side of the box. What limited text there is printed on the box is extremely tiny and too hard to read. You are better off getting the instruc...

Cool and sexy

Tony K., Newegg
18 May 2015
  • Pros: Has dropped the temps on my 8320 to 45 celsius in idle, and ~58 celsius in SWTOR and TESO. My next move up will be liquid cooling, but until then this will abide nicely. Plenty of clearance in my Corsair Carbide 540.
  • Cons: Wasn't free and doesn't burn calories.
